Oddly, one of the "clones" (mean girls) is also in the Jedi Knights club, AnAesop about how you shouldn't label people.



* ''WesternAnimation/{FanboyAndChumChum'': The title characters were clearly meant to be this, but aside from wearing superhero costumes and occasionally being seen reading comic books, they don't exhibit typical fanboy behavior. Oz, their acquaintance and the owner of the local comic book shop, is a textbook example.

The term used for obsessive fans of a particular activity that goes a bit too far onto the creepy side. Unlike {{fangirl}}s (which usually refers to women obsessed with characters and their relationships with either other characters or themselves to the exclusion of the rest of the elements of the canon), the term "fanboy" is usually reserved for antisocial people with a self-inflated ego over their knowledge and/or mastery of the topic in question, often parading it around and belittling those around him. They are to fandoms what StopHavingFunGuys are to tournament rules.

In Japanese, the term {{Otaku}} is synonymous with this, but also implies an almost stalker-like attitude as well. The original (very pejorative) meaning got lost when it was adopted by English language fans of {{Anime}}.
